Earn Your High School Equivalency with Adult Education Classes from MGCCC

MGCCC offers Adult Education (AE) classes for those who do not have a high school diploma. Classes are held on the campuses in George, Harrison, Jackson and Stone counties.

Gulf Coast’s AE program provides individuals the opportunity to take classes that prepare them to take a high school equivalency test (GED, HiSet, TASC) and to improve their reading, writing, language and/or math skills. Research shows that High School Equivalency recipients will earn approximately 43% more than non-recipients during their lifetime.

Off-campus classes are held at the Gulfport one stop WIN Job Center and the Pascagoula WIN Job Center. Class days and times vary at each site.
